UNSW SAGE Merges with CVEN

By on 12 March, 2013


On 1 March 2013, the School of Surveying & Geospatial Engineering (SAGE) integrated with the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering (CVEN) to form the largest school in the UNSW Faculty of Engineering, with approximately 2,000 students and over 160 staff, including academic, research, and technical.

It is expected that SAGE undergraduate and postgraduate programs and research activities, will continue as before, with most SAGE academic, research and technical support staff joining the team at CVEN. Bringing together the related disciplines of surveying/geospatial and civil/environmental engineering within one School will facilitate interdisciplinary teaching and research activities relating to natural and engineered systems.

According to a new report by BIS Shrapnel, Australia’s ambitious 2020 industry and infrastructure goals are at risk if the growing shortage of surveyors is not addressed. The new CVEN will play an important role in educating Australia’s future surveying and geospatial engineering professionals.

2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the second graduating class of the UNSW surveying program, then in the School of Civil Engineering. SAGE has invited you to join them in celebrating their achievements, and to mark the start of a new era in the education of surveyors and geospatial professionals.
